    Promoting your website is important, of course. However, having a lot of content, especially if it's written by someone with a keen interest in the topic as opposed to a page generated for particular keywords, gives you a much better product to promote.

    Something else to consider is that some webmasters have a number of sites, many of which they might not have time to actively promote on a regular basis, day in and day out, year in and year out. For that reason, free traffic via search engine marketing versus other marketing means is invaluable. And that traffic only comes with content.

    Simply creating content on a consistent basis would only take you half-way towards the goal. It is also important that you promote the site correctly. Unless you work on marketing the site over the web, you cannot expect people to simply find your website.

    The more the volume of traffic coming to your blog, the better are the chances of people actually clicking the affiliate link and generating a sale. So, don't just focus on building content, you can also market it well over the internet. For that purpose, you may start participating in public forums (niche), bookmark your articles in leading social bookmarking sites, share the pages among your social networks, promote the video tutorials over video sites etc.

    Blogging about your interests isn't the fastest way to reach your target market of webmasters. However, you will find them simply because webmasters cross all demographic spectrums. Also, you might create content much faster when you're blogging about something in which you're especially interested. So, perhaps it evens out in the end.

    Yeah, things like blogs tend to be harder and slower like you said but ultimately the rewards are greater if they are done right .

    Slow Way:

    1. Creating a website (blog) that match your interests.

    2. No need to think about the keyword, make it an article as much as possible and then you post on your blog regularly. For example, daily maximum of 5 articles. Do not be too much because for which only making free blogs like blogspot, wordpress can be considered spamm and eventually shut down your blog.

    3. Promote your blog article via the blog. We recommend using a sentence that does not smell promotions, make people interested or curious about your status so that they would click on his link. For example:
    It turns out that tomatoes are also delicious sweets contrived yes, this is how to http:// ....

    4. The more that come to your blog means that your blog is ready fitted with a banner ad or text link ads. Approximley 3 months was not fitted with any affiliate link.

    Fast Way:

    Advertise in the web of others. Can use PPC. Be careful using your budget for this!

    This is a very good idea, especially with social media / networks being so popular these days. It definitely can't hurt to include the affiliate links on such things .

    Very well suggested by Seema
    The key to promoting affiliate links and really getting an affiliate marketing business off the ground is to have your own website
    A number of newbies assume that starting website might be a costly affair and due to low budgets they would usually refrain from building a website of their own. But in reality one can create a website at a cheap cost of 2.50 GBP per month. The cPanel hosting package has just about everything to offer. Using a built-in feature of Softaculous you can create a website of your choice, may it be a blog, forum, social bookmarking etc. all the scripts are available for free, so nothing to be bothered about, simply install the appropriate software within minutes your site is up and running, this sets you going with your affiliate marketing venture. :wink:

    I absolutely agree. Truly, who does not a website in this day and age? Individuals marketing themselves, startup businesses by the millions, and those who have a creative endeavor, a cause, or something else to share are all in need of a website and, therefore, web hosting.

    I agree, you can practically promote your affiliate link anywhere appropriate. Today everybody needs a website to base his online business on or just to establish his online presence.

    I really can't think of anyone who would not find some value in owning a website. Certainly, if you have any kind of business, a website is an absolute necessity. Whether you're a freelance artist or the owner of a large chain of stores, you need a website. It seems smart to make a practice of including your affiliate link anywhere you have the opportunity.

    You really gotto be smart with that. You must analyze and try to think of all those places where webmaster would usually go. Webmaster,website designing and development forums is just a single area, you can also find people who'd be looking for web hosting services on answering sites, social networks, review sites etc. So increasing your activities at such places should definitely increase your chances of sale hence a commission. :wink:

    Participating on forums with your signature can generate a lot of traffic to your affiliate site. For time efficiency, it's best to concentrate on forums with webmasters as likely visitors. However, if you're posting on other forums for personal interests and hobbies, it never hurts to include your affiliate business. You never know when someone might be in need of web hosting. People are always starting online businesses and you can't do that without a website!
